They come in all shapes and sizes: spareribs. But when we read the news that The Butchery is selling copies with stroopwafels, we were silent for a while. Because why has no one come up with this ingenious combination of spareribs with stroopwafels before?
The online quality lager in the Netherlands that is not averse to an experiment: The Butchery . This is again apparent from this collaboration with ambassador Jeremy of Black Gold Smokehouse. Jeremy asked his followers on Instagram which flavor they would most like to see with the rack ribs from The Butchery and the unanimous surprising answer came: the Dutch stroopwafel.
No sooner said than done, you would think. Well no. Because no matter how experienced Jeremy is and how nice the Dutch stroopwafel seemed to him as an Englishman, the self-proclaimed “BBQ Jedi” also scratched himself after hearing this suggestion.
Jeremy: “I was a little scared of how in the world’s name I was going to do this. After all, they are two very special flavors and combining something sweet with meat requires a lot of attention and creativity.” But, always up for something innovative, he set to work.

And that resulted in the ultimate Dutch ribs. “Perfectly balanced and a real showstopper,” says Jeremy. He used St. Louis style ribs for this, but baby backs would also do a great job. The buttery tender rib turns out to be a golden combination with the texture of the stroopwafel and the syrup works great for a beautiful glossy glaze . Jeremy also chose bacon as a salty counterpart.
It all takes some time and attention, but then you have something. The exact recipe can be found on the site of The Butchery , for more BBQ recipes the Instagram account of Black Gold Smokehouse is also worth a visit. Get a taste?
